Add Information:

After Midnight were formed in 1985 in Newcastle upon Tyne.

For the first 15 years After Midnight performed at most of the pubs and clubs in the north east, building up a loyal following but playing a variety of covers including Free, Cream, Dire Straits and of course Eric Clapton. In 2000 the band began concentrating on tribute concerts devoted entirely to Slowhand's music.

They called the tribute show "CLASSIC CLAPTON". Since then, they have continued to perform throughout the UK and Europe including concerts at The Royal Festival Hall, London and a triumphant appearance at Glastonbury Festival in 2002. In the past few years they have performed numerous concerts in Europe including Spain, Estonia, Holland & France.

In 2009 they appeared at St Andrews Auditorium in Mumbai. A 10,000 mile round-trip for 1 concert, but it was a great experience. They were invited back for 3 more concerts in India in 2016. This included performing in front of 3500 people in an open air sports arena in Mumbai. On 18 March 2017 they appeared in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

In the past 32 years After Midnight have become something of a rock institution.
